Crack open the Bolly!
Aussie’s own and gay icon Kylie Minogue has covered the classic theme song This Wheels On Fire for the soundtrack of the much anticipated Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.
“As a huge fan of the Ab Fab series and both Jennifer (Saunders) and Joanna (Lumley), I’m over the moon to be singing the theme song,” Kylie said.
Other artists contributing to the soundtrack include Paloma Faith and La Roux.
Earlier this week, Lumley revealed that her iconic character Patsy Stone is transgender.
The actress made the revelation about her booze and drug-addled alter ego as she discussed the show’s colourful history – praising the BBC comedy as groundbreaking in its approach to LGBT characters and storylines.
The track, a cover of BOB DYLAN’s 1975 song, is now available to pre-order on download — and it doesn’t disappoint.
It will be included in the show’s first feature-length film, in which Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone, played by Jennifer and JOANNA LUMLEY, escape to the French Riviera after shoving KATE MOSS into the Thames.
The first screenshots from the movie in April and promises to keep you updated with further exclusives regarding the film everyone’s talking about.
And JANE HORROCKS, who portrays Eddie’s ditzy assistant Bubble and arch-nemesis Katy Grin, will also be breaking out a performance of Big Spender.
Kylie said: “As a huge fan of the Ab Fab series and both Jennifer and Joanna, I’m over the moon to be singing the theme song.”
Such a sweetie, darling.
